my dad worked for millspaugh in the 70s, his name was frank wild,i cant recall what he did there,i think he could have been a machinist, but i know he was involved with the works football team. i remember the inter departmental cricket matches they had on bawtry rd, i even played in one when i was about 13 or so when his side was short.i think his best mate was a bob smith .

I started work there as an apprentice turner.

Was found a position at Daniel Doncaster's when it closed.

 

Anyone remember me ?

Wonder if you knew a Les Cartiledge, nicknamed Liggy by his apprentices. He was in charge of young platers and welders at Millspaugh,and he brought 4 of his young lads with him when got the foreman's job at a company I worked for in the mid- seventies called Group Fabrications, who rented part of the Millspaugh building. Sadly, he died of lung cancer about 2 years after joining us. I can only recall 2 of the youngsters first names one was Gary and the other was Graham. Ironically the first 8 years of my working life 1961 to 1969 were spent right next door i.e. Hadfields.It's all Meadowhall now of course

 Hi Granville, I am the poster who you replied to, I changed my username due to a misunderstanding of the forum fules.

 Anyway the name  "Liggy" was what the cheeky young lads who came over with him from Millspaugh called him. His proper name was Les Cartiledge and he was the boss over those apprentices at Millspaugh  who came over with him, maybe he was in a training dept. or something if you didn't know him. He was a short stocky guy with thinning grey hair combed straight back in his 50s and had a gruffish voice probably because he smoked about 10 Park Drive an hour. .Lol.

Knew Les Cartiledge in the late 60's when he was at the Davy United Training School running the apprentice training Fab shop. 10 yrs later I worked in the drawing office on Alsing Rd but by that time it was Ashlows.

I was an apprentice at Davy united from 1967 and Les Cartiledge was the fabrication guy. I believe his son worked there to ?

I remember he was a heavy smoker
